About University Research Week
University Research Week (formerly St. Albert’s Day) is celebrated in honor of St. Albert Magnus, or Albert the Great, who was a scientist, philosopher, and theologian, and served as a mentor to St. Thomas Aquinas. During his lifetime, St. Albert the Great composed a veritable encyclopedia which contained scientific treatises on almost every subject. His life and writings emphasized the importance of experiment and investigation.
This year, the week’s events will be hosted virtually and live via Zoom from April 20-April 22, 2021. Creighton University Undergraduate, Graduate, and Professional Students are encouraged to submit an abstract for their research, present a poster, or give a platform presentation.
Poster presentations will be virtual. You will present one slide for your research (in poster format). You will have 5-7 minutes to present and there will be 5-7 minutes for Q&A. Platform presentations will also be virtual and you will present a full slide deck in 10-12 minutes with 3-5 minutes of Q&A.
